Take One Car
Every community has a genesis story. Upstate New York’s Take One Car attribute their identity to embracing theirs.
Since releasing their first LP in 2009 – When the Ceiling Meets the Floor – members Tyler Irish, Pete Scholes, & Laurent Blanchette allowed themselves to be the products of their capabilities, enduring trial to identify and cast aside error. This natural maturation imbues the band with an experience and sense of self that sets them apart from their DIY counterparts while still maintaining the organic face-to-face intimacy shared by their peers. Take One Car draws from a variety of musical influences from the tattered ups and downs of mewithoutYou to the echoing atmospheres of As Cities Burn.
Take One Car has developed a remarkable knack for capturing feeling and the oscillating atmosphere that it quivers in.
Brosandi is one man solo project based in Ottawa playing music in the range of AmbientDrone/Experimental/Math Rock. Picture big soundscapes through guitar.
